President Donald Trump remarks at Signing of H.R.748, The CARES Act

 

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – THE PRESIDENT Donald Trump:  Well, thank you all very much.  This is a very important day.  I’ll sign the single-biggest economic relief package in American history and, I must say, or any other package, by the way.  It’s twice as large as any relief ever signed. 

It’s $2.2 billion, but it actually goes up to 6.2 — potentially — billion dollars — trillion dollars.  So you’re talking about 6.2 trillion-dollar bill.  Nothing like that.  And this will deliver urgently needed relief to our nation’s families, workers, and businesses.  And that’s what this is all about.

Representative Mark Green Protects Schools from Unnecessary Lawsuits During National Coronavirus Emergency

 

U.S. house of RepresentativesWashington, D.C. – Today, Tuesday, March 24th, 2020,  Representative Mark Green sent a letter to Senators Mitch McConnell and Chuck Schumer urging them to waive the requirements of the Individuals with Disabilities Education Act (IDEA) in Congress’ coronavirus relief legislation and and give school districts more time to implement proper protocols given the extraordinary circumstances of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Representative Green said, “Secretary DeVos needs this waiver authority during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Without a waiver, school districts will be in violation, and costly litigation will occur against States and districts who operate in good faith to provide services to their communities.”

The White HouseWashington, D.C. – THE PRESIDENT DONALD TRUMP:  Thank you very much.  I had a very good telephone conversation — extremely good — with Senator Schumer a little while ago.  We’re working on various elements of the deal, and the Democrats are very much wanting something to happen, and the Republicans, likewise, are very much wanting something to happen.  And I think it will.

I spoke with — at length with Mitch McConnell.  And there’s tremendous spirit to get something done, so we’ll see what happens.  But my conversation was very good with Senator Schumer.

Marsha Blackburn Report: A Sham Process

 

U.S. SenateWashington, D.C. – Here’s the scoop on impeachment. For the past three years, Representative Nancy Pelosi (D-CA), who is currently the Speaker of the House of Representatives, has grasped aimlessly at every unsubstantiated claim, desperate to find an impeachable offense.

There is a reason the only bipartisan vote in the House was against impeachment. President Donald Trump has not abused his power. If the House sends its articles of impeachment to the Senate and the trial begins, Tennesseans can count on me to stand with President Trump.
